Article in the Link

Concordia's independant paper the Link recently wrote up the Die-in, and the editor was kind enough to send me a couple of very nice photos taken at the event. They can be found in the appropriate section, and the article can be found [here].

Critical Mass is TOMORROW, people, and it looks like the weather might actually cooperate. Can't wait to see you there! This month's theme will be music; here's the official press release from Charlie:

Die-in

Thanks to everyone who made it to the Die-in, I can't believe how many people showed up! I was also very impressed with the police; almost all of them were on bicycles and they didn't interfere more than was necessary. It seemed like they were just there to make sure everyone was safe.

Cops are very likeable when they're doing their job. :)

Article in the Hour

More media coverage - the Hour wrote up Critical Mass, and interviewed one rider about the unfortunate arrests that happened at the beginning of August's ride. You can read the story at [the Hour's website] or head over to the Media section.

It's a little strange that they referred to the "organisation" known as Critical Mass Montreal... it's flattering, but I'm just one guy running a website.

Le Devoir article

We're in the news! Le Devoir did an extensive and very favourable front-page report on Montreal's growing Critical Mass, check out the Media section. Thanks to Yann for catching it.
